Tips for success with your spooky goodies:

  1. Hold your piping bag close to your cookie, and steady it using both hands.
  2. Make your spider with a larger round tip 5, holding bag at 90-degree angle.
  3. If you end up with an icing tip, just dip your finger in cornstarch and dab the icing to round it out.
  4. Use a smaller round tip 2 for the spider’s little legs.
